Two-time major winner John Daly offered Tiger Woods some advice Tuesday on the heels of Woods' DUI arrest early Monday morning.

In an interview with TMZ Sports, Daly suggested all will be forgotten if Tiger can get himself back in action on the PGA Tour: "Get back on the golf course, man. This stuff will pass. It always does. Hey, it proves he's human, he's one of us, baby. I love him."

According to the police report (h/t ESPN.com), Woods was stopped in Jupiter, Florida, and failed a number of field sobriety tests.

He blew a 0.00 in the breath test but told police he was taking multiple prescription medications.

Woods apologized after the arrest and said he didn't expect medications to impact him so significantly:

"I understand the severity of what I did, and I take full responsibility for my actions. I want the public to know that alcohol was not involved. What happened was an unexpected reaction to prescribed medications. I didn't realize the mix of medications had affected me so strongly."

In addition to returning to golf, Daly stressed the importance of people in Woods' situation getting a ride rather than taking a risk behind the wheel:

"Call a friend. Call Uber. ... The Tour's been so great with us. Anyone can come pick you up, but Tiger probably didn't think he was feeling that bad."

Woods has undergone multiple back surgeries and hasn't appeared in an event since January.

The 41-year-old remains stuck on 14 career major wins, but he recently reiterated on his website that he still intends to return to competitive golf.
